WASHINGTON – President Obama and the Democratic Party have raised more than $240 million for his re-election, swamping his rivals' fundraising as the president races to build a war chest to defend against the eventual Republican nominee and deep-pocketed GOP "super PACS."

This is about the total net worth of Mitt Romney. Obama collected a record $745 million to win the presidency in 2008, raising expectations that his re-election effort could exceed $1 billion.

Obama collected more than $42 million during the closing three months of the year, his campaign announced Thursday, while more than $24 million went to the Democratic National Committee, to help build a national campaign infrastructure ahead of the November election.

The fundraising puts Obama roughly on par with the amounts raised by President George W. Bush at this point in his 2004 re-election effort. But this year's contest is markedly different.



And the President of the United States is...Barack Obama
